Hello,
Just wondering if I can customize BlogEngine.NET with MS Developer Express. Also can BlogEngine
be integrated into a already written Asp.net website?
Thank you for your time

Just open BlogEngine.NET in Dev Express as existing web site. All you need is to set reference to core DLL in your web project, and should be good to go. I often run it in Dev Express 2008, with BlogEngine.Core.dll added to the /bin folder.

Great question about integrating with another ASP.Net website. The answer is really a "not really". You will have to set up BE.N into another virtual directory or web site.

The BE.N is very tightly integrated and separating the peices has not been easy at all. I have tried several ideas and have found that many of the peices are just too interwoven. So rather than fight it, I just added my stuff to it.
